Thu 29 Mar 2012, 19:00, by Dr Shahdad Heydari , at Bistro Burritoville:3rd floor, 2055 Rue Bishop, Montreal,QC (Map)
he history of western art presents a survey of the greatest achievements in the history of art from the stone age to the post impressionist world. The aim of this presentation is to bring some intelligible order into the wealth of names, periods and styles which crowd the art books. it will try to make us see the history of art as a continuous weaving and changing of traditions in which each work refers to the past and points to the future.

About us

CaféLitt is not a place; it is a gathering of minds. We are a group of mostly Persian young students, scholars and professionals who gather every Thursday evening around 19h00 in a café to discuss various subjects and share different ideas, ranging vastly from history to science, from literature to fine arts. We started these gatherings on Jan 18th, 2007. Each week, one of us takes the responsibility of presenting a topic (in Persian, English or French) for about an hour in a subject s/he is intimately familiar with or has an expertise in. Afterwards, the evening turns into a discussion forum and all members of the audience will have an opportunity to ask their question(s) and share their points of view.
CaféLitt is open to all comments, suggestion, collaboration and new ideas. CaféLitt provides an unparalleled opportunity for learning about culture, science and philosophy in a relaxed and friendly environment, and for sharing your knowledge and expertise with like-minded members of your community.
CaféLitt is officially registered as a non-profitable group and is a nonpartisan, nonreligious and nonpolitical entity.
